Re: 4 weeks after hving a total hysterectomy..
The same thing happened to me! I had my hysterectomy in February, also robotic assisted laparoscopic. Anytime I coughed or sneezed or moved suddenly I had sharp pain in my right side. I was also bleeding moderately and spotting. I stood up one day and blood just POURED out of me. Possibly the scariest thing I've ever experienced.
My DH rushed me to the ER...turns out an artery had burst, possibly the doctor said it was nicked during my hysterectomy.
Be cautious. It was about three weeks after the surgery and I had to have another to have the artery repaired. If something doesn't feel right, have it checked out.
